Herrmann's Cottage is a classic Australian miner's cottage (circa 1860) set on over half-acre of gardens. It is fully self-contained and completely private.
Herrmann Blum acquired this half-acre allotment in the Parish of Maldon by Crown Grant in 1859. He established "a three-roomed weatherboard house with iron roof, two stables and outhouses". And today, as you enter Herrmann's Cottage, you can see the original three rooms are still there!
The cottage has recently been carefully redecorated throughout: retaining all the character but with the modern comforts. It features a traditional front verandah with slate paving, and inside there are the original dados and Baltic pine floors. There's a sitting room with a wood fire, three bedrooms, an updated bathroom with an original claw-foot bath and a brick paved courtyard with an outdoor table setting and BBQ.
Come and relax in the peace and tranquillity of Herrmann's Cottage and enjoy the experience of historic Maldon!
Herrmann's Cottage is maintained with some essential provisions on-hand (eg some tea, coffee and milk is provided). And also included with the tariff could be some jams or chutneys, a nice loaf of bread from the Maldon Bakery, some fresh free-range eggs, or maybe some chocolates or a bottle of wine (the actual selection depending on the duration of your stay and what's suitably available locally at the time).
There are three (3) bedrooms. Two double bedrooms and a third bedroom with a single bed. The bed linen is provided.
The sitting room has a wood heater, a TV, DVD and CD player (and a small selection of DVDs and CDs).
